Video of the first steps: [link]



I am not shy but I can't stay in one place any longer.
Often, you don't notice I am already on your shoulder,
But when I leave you, you may feel a bit heavyhearted.

My feathers are sweet and soothing like a fresh water,
You can collect them, as a photo or words in your dairy,
However you will never capture me in a tissue or a flask.

A lot of people don't believe I exist, they get over this.
Some of them think I am made of gold or colorful drugs,
Others can run away or attack me when I am approaching.

Many are those who are looking for a moment with me,
But they easily head for a wrong way, even if I call back.
I saw a lot of persons endangering their live to find me,
Several of them called me Death, War, Power or God.

Mostly time, if you catch me, you want more so I vanish.
Like for candy, the expectation is a hard moment to live,
Once consumed, the sweet things end tasteless, useless.
The best moment was the desire, a journey for the hope,

I exist when you pursue me, I disappear when you get me.

I can see that you've already been told this, but you are a magnificent artist. All of your art speaks loudly yet subtly. The Poetry paired with it magnifies it to a level that pulls at the heart and compels the soul. Thank you for taking the time to have depth of thought in your art. It is wonderful

You're so right, I've used the analogy of a bird before as well. It doesn't need to be fed or groomed, but it makes a terrible pet nonetheless. It only works if you set it free.
